Elite Plus was released for DOS in 1991. Whereas the original Elite (1987) for the PC used CGA graphics, Elite Plus was upgraded to take advantage of EGA, VGA and MCGA. It was coded entirely in assembly language by Chris Sawyer, who later wrote RollerCoaster Tycoon. Elite Plus had a ninth galaxy that can only be reached by hyperspacing into Witch Space. Elite Plus was published by Microplay Software. (Wikipedia)
Creators Ian Bell, and David Braben have both stated over the years that all versions of Elite can be freely distributed

Open screens of game
The opening screens of the game appear to run well. The audio quality is typically rubbish of this period for PCs. This particular version of the game is not cracked and it asks for a "word" from the manual. You will need to look up "Elite Plus" on Archive.org and find the manual (this only takes around 20 seconds of your time).
